What makes this house unique

Very quiet. Noon whistle in the distance every day. Wonderful place to think and/or relax and/or recharge batteries but still stay connected to the business world.

July vacation

We recently stayed at Heron Cove and for the most part were very pleased with the house and surrounding area. The house was equipped as stated except for a lack of good size bowls and dish towels. There were plenty of bath towels and bed linens. Our main complaint was the cleanliness of the house. Lisa if you are paying someone to come in and clean between guests than I suggest you find another company. The black mold around the windows and on the fridge seal was not good. My son upon arrival had to start taking medicine for this. I would suggest a dehumidifier for the basement as the dampness and odor made it impossible to stay down there. Also there was a broken rocking chair on the porch and you have let the bushes grow so that it was hard to get down to the water, (not like picture). The house otherwise fit our needs and it was quiet and nice to be able to let the kids play outside without worrying about them going out into the road. Neighbors were nice enough to let us put our kayak in from their property. It was very relaxing, with lots of wonderful sights. The view from the deck is beautiful. Would recommend this home if the few things I mentioned were addressed

Hi Lisa, I just wanted everyone to know this house was so quiet and peaceful. You can walk to a small bridge that overlooks the water. It was wonderful here and not far down the road is a small country store that everyone talked and talked with you about where you were from and if you are having a great time. We did a lot of site seeing and down time in the evenings. Thanks again for your hospitality.
